Competition Law and the Maritime Sector

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

THE LONDON SHIPPING LAW CENTRE AT UCL
WELCOMES MEMBERS AND THEIR COLLEAGUES TO THE TENTH MONTHLY EVENT IN THE
 2008 – 2009 EVENTS PROGRAMME
 
Competition Law and the Maritime Sector
1st July 2009, 4.30pm

On 1 July 2008 the European Commission adopted the “Guidelines on the application of competition rules to the maritime sector”.  One year on, how have the Guidelines worked in practice?  In this difficult economic climate, have they helped or hindered the maritime sector to assess agreements and activities to ensure compliance with the competition rules?

This seminar will address these questions and consider how companies can successfully “self assess” their agreements and activities.
 
Chairperson - Marjorie Holmes - Reed Smith

Keynote speaker - Hubert de Broca - DG Competition, the European Commission.
